Homeless Housing & Services RFP

Snohomish County announces the availability of funding for a range of homeless housing and services interventions supported by multiple funding sources: Ending Homelessness Program (EHP), Washington State Commerce Consolidated Homeless Grant (CHG) and Emergency Solutions Grant (WA State ESG).
Updated March 20, 2017: Snohomish County is accepting applications for Rapid Rehousing Projects (RRH).

OCHS is reopening the 2017-2019 Requests for Proposals (RFP) for Homeless Housing & Services to accept applications specifically for RRH. The County did not receive an adequate number of RRH applications to meet the needs of unsheltered adults and families in our community. 

  • This supplemental RFP process is only open to eligible RRH projects, the County will not accept applications for any other program intervention types.
  • Snohomish County is specifically looking for proposals to serve unsheltered adult only households and families with children.
  • This is a competitive application process; open to eligible, existing programs and new (not currently operational) programs.
  • All the original RFP/Application requirements are applicable to this supplemental RFP process with exception to the application due date and the eligible program intervention (only RRH projects are eligible). Application materials:
The deadline for RRH applications is 4:00pm on Monday, March 27, 2017. No applications will be accepted after this deadline.
